May I know how about 忻洛 translate to Hokkien name?

 

In peh-oe-ji, it would be Him-lo̍k. This would rhyme with the other name.

林美娟 Lîm Bí-koan (this feels like the most mainstream name of the three)

林妹睊 Lîm Bōe-koàn / Lîm Mūi-koàn (depending on the variety of Hokkien that you speak)

林妹娟 Lîm Bōe-koan / Lîm Mūi-koan (depending on the variety of Hokkien that you speak)

Hō is what the Taiwanese MOEDict gives for the character 浩, which has been pronounced the same as 晧 since at least Early Middle Chinese.

Hi Michaelyus, thanks you very much for your reply.

As I am Hainanese, my mum would prefer Hainanese sounding name.

Able to provide another translation?

 

Thanks once again.

Sure. I'm going to use the Hainan Romanized transliteration scheme:

 

林美娟 Lîm Múi-kiang

林妹睊 Lîm Mue-kiàng

林妹娟 Lîm Mue-kiang

Hi, thanks for the info.
 
can the translated name be written as shown,
 
For e.g. if chinese name 刘必超, Han yu pinyin, Liu Bi Chao, in Singapore, written dialect name is Low Pit Chao.
for this case, 林美娟, Han yu pinyin, Lin Mei Juan, written dialect name is it, Lîm Múi-kiang?? Or it should be something else.
 
Thanks.

Hi everyone, 

 

I am thinking to name my son 「暄昊」。 Can anyone help on how it is pronounced and written in Hokkien? 
 

I have tried some online Taiwanese dictionary but it seems that they do not have these words in their entry. 
 

Thank you very much.
